Wedding Photography Experience

It starts and ends with happiness!

Important: We have evolved our wedding photography experience over the years to provide a professional service.  

Before Your Wedding:

  1. Wedding Photography Consultation.  Book a Wedding Consultation to meet me.  This is the best time to ask all those questions and listen to my description of how to best photograph your particular wedding.
  2. Receive Your Quotation.  Decide upon the Wedding Photography Coverage you would like or let me design a quotation that fits your wedding perfectly - always working within your budget.
  3. Approve Your Quotation.  I might send you a couple of different quotations in an email proposal.  You then select your preferred quotation, and pay your Booking Fee. Your date is not secured until your Booking Fee is received.
  4. Booking Fee.  Once you have chosen to pay your Booking Fee ($400), your date is secured.  The Booking Fee is deducted from the overall cost of your photography package.
  5. Contract.  Your contract is to protect both you and me.  It outlines exactly what is to take place and the relevant requirements for the day.
  6. Engagement Photo Shoot.  Organise a date for your engagement photo session.  It's a complimentary shoot so that we are able to get to know each other a little more and we understand more about each other's style and preferences. This is the perfect time to have your hair and makeup trial so that the photos are gorgeous.  I would like this conducted 1-2 months before your wedding date.
  7. Engagement Portrait.  Your pre-wedding images will be uploaded to an online gallery.  Please select your favourite image and I will beautifully enhance in Photoshop and supply it to you digitally, shortly afterwards. 
  8. Final Payment.  Your final payment is due one month before your wedding.  You should have received a link to your online invoice when you booked.  Let me know if you need the link again.
  9. Wedding Day Details Form.  About 3 weeks before your wedding I will ask you to let me know a lot more about your wedding day so that we leave no room for error.  Please complete this form.  Then, we can discuss your day in detail.
  10. Pre-wedding Walkthrough.  During the week before your wedding it can be quite advantageous to conduct a walkthrough of your location/locations if either of us feels it is necessary.  This can be very beneficial.  If your wedding is some distance away, this needs to be carefully considered as travel costs may be necessary.
 

 
 




 



 

 After Your Wedding:

  1. Wedding Day Photography.  I will have liaised with you in detail just before your wedding and the coverage on the day will be dedicated and professional.
  2. Social Media Preview.  Just a few days after your wedding, select images will be made available via Facebook for you to share.  I will not post any images if you are on your honeymoon with no internet access - I want you to see them first.
  3. Online Gallery.  Your beautiful images will be available online within three weeks for you to download and share.  There will be a black and white version of each image if this is part of your package. To download your images from your online gallery, just click on 'select photos' in the top right hand corner of the screen.  If you would like to download all the photos, click 'select all' from the top left of the screen. 
  4. Album.  Have a look at the album colours here. You will then select the images for your album. You are invited to participate in the design process, and, if necessary, attend a final design meeting.  Here we can really clarify any specific design requests. My designs are available to view at the initial wedding consultation so that you know my style of album, and album design. Your album will take about a month to print.
  5. Testimonial.  Leave a Testimonial, if you like (I would be very grateful!).
